Me too :)

The thing that I find "weird" about using cheap copies is that it
changes the layout/structure of the filesystem tree (subversion's
filesystem, not working copies) which is not something I want to do.
A revision label, does the job of a marking a specific version
without changing the tree. It's not really a BIG deal, but I would
rather avoid having to treat some parts of the tree as serving that
sort of special purpose and not as part of the organizational
structure of my data.

As mentioned before, revision labels can serve a similar purpose as
PREV, COMMITTED, BASE, HEAD...

I can live without out labels, but if I had them, I would use them.
